FT launches non-executive directors club

Financial Times Recruitment Solutions has relaunched the site www.non-execs.com as the Financial Times Non-Executive Directors’ Club, in association with Grant Thornton.

As the role of the board is under more scrutiny than ever before and the value of good non-executives has never been more sharply realised, the Financial Times provides the only UK premier service for non-executives, bringing together leading recruitment companies, major executive institutions and industry thought-leaders.

Members will benefit from news of appointments, a variety of networking opportunities through tailored events and keeping up to date with corporate governance issues through non-execs.com.

Catherine Jacklin, Head of Marketing, Financial Times Recruitment Solutions commented: “By relaunching our new look site, increasing the number of jobs, launching our UK events and broadening our coverage on key corporate governance issues, we provide both aspiring and existing non-executive directors with a complete resource, unrivalled anywhere in the UK”.

Simon Lowe, Managing Partner, Business Risk Services practice, Grant Thornton commented: “With the role of NEDs increasingly in the spot light, we recognise the importance of these individuals as key influencers. We are therefore delighted to be working in partnership with the Financial Times to deliver such a valuable resource to non-executive directors across the UK”.
